Topsy turvy

Hello again! I haven't quite expected it, but I have one more post to share tonight. If you missed the previous one (or yesterday's CASE Study post), feel free to browse!

It's been an 'in-and-out of the craft space' kind of day, and I found myself completing another card. It's even simpler this time, and so not my style...!
I started with the Tape Color Trends Challenge at Embellish blog, that I wanted to play with for some time. I'm always having trouble with clever use of washi tape, so I googled it for a bit and that's what came to my mind afterwards...



It's not necessarily a clever use of tape either, but I think it's a cute card. I really like how the sky turned out, and I created it by inking only a part of the HA Clouds stamp.
You can achieve this look, with the outlines softly merging with the background, by using an inkpad with a soft, spongy surface. Versa Magic or Impress pads would work just fine, I used ColorBox pigment Cat's Eye pad and it was great too. Pads with fabric-covered surface like Memento and SU! inks are not perfect for this.

I'm also playing with the Topsy Turvy challenge at A Blog Named Hero. They ask to use the sentiment as something else, and my idea was to create a trail behind the bike, like a breath of wind. I hope it shows!



This time do see you tomorrow :) Thanks for visiting!

  3. Love your card - it caught my eye at SCS. When I went to CASE study this morning, Google (or my computer, who knows) gave me a Malware message - so I can't post my card there. Not sure if you're aware (or the right person to tell, even!)

  6. Fun card! Love that only part of the card has the clouds, and the bike is anchored by the washi tape!

  9. So whimsical - love how you faded out the sky and used the sentiment - think of this following your bicycle as your riding... wonderful.
